Description - The Open Book by M. Jensen

This is a provocative study of literary influence at work in English writing from Hardy to Woolf. Margaret Jensen re-imagines the links between text and context as palimpsest historicizes literary influence, by taking Bloomian "anxiety" and Kristevan "intertextuality" into fields of actual history and biography. Jensen both borrows from and deconstructs the works of these theorists as she reads the texts of Hardy, Stephens, Woolf, Mansfield and Middleton Murray. In doing so, she offers a fresh and pragmatic opening onto the relation between personal, cultural and institutional history on the one hand, and literary history on the other.
